Small Glass Trade Beads on original Raffia
Subtle colors, this strand came through African Traders just the way they are. For those of you who are new to collecting, when you see beads strung like this, they were made in Murano or some other place in Europe, taken to Africa in trade and restrung to return to the markets here and sold by the traders from Africa. I have been buying trade beads for about 40 years! You can see what I do with them in the African trade section of my web.
